In 2018, after months of frustration trying to use Pinterest to grow From Pennies to Plenty, I decided to learn how to use it strategically. I’m happy to say that my Pinterest numbers and blog traffic have been going up. There are several reasons for this. Besides being more strategic with my pinning, I’ve been making pins that appeal to viewers.
This week I’m taking a step back from writing about the usual topics of personal finance and reselling thrifted clothes to introduce a new topic to From Pennies to Plenty, specifically blogging. Over the past 1-2 years, I’ve been growing FP2P from a hobby blog into a profitable business. This is consistent with my ever-growing love of side hustles and entrepreneurship.
Pinterest. As a blogger, just hearing that word conjures up strong emotions. Some bloggers love Pinterest while others hate it. Most bloggers know that Pinterest can drive insane amounts of traffic to your site. What blogger wouldn't want that? But getting yourself established on Pinterest to the point that you're bringing in those big numbers, well, that can be maddening.
